We will be landing at Brisbane airport and plan to drive a rental car up to Noosa, then return and drive through/around Brisbane and head for Sydney, via Springbrook NP. We have visited Brisbane CBD etc before so do not plan to stop there again, but wondered if it was worth detouring to the west round Brisbane to visit Mt Coot-tha and possibly Brisbane Forest park. The detour seems quite long and complex and I wondered whether the destination justified the difficulty?
If we drive from the airport north on M1, are any tolls payable ? I know that if we return on the M1 and cross the Gateway Bridge then a toll will be payable - I presume that this can be done on line as we will have a wifi tablet with us, but no phone?
